• Otopharynx Lithobates Zimbabwe Rocks Sulfur Head (Germany) (Excellent Yellow Blaze Z-Rock)

This strain of Zimbabwe Rocks Lithobates is imported from Germany. This fish shows great color. They color up sooner, around 2.5 inches, than the classic Zimbabwe Rocks Strain and often show a wider yellow blaze on the head than the classic version of this fish. Males are blue with a wide yellow blaze on the head and yellow on the dorsal fin. Some males show yellow on the body as well. A few may obtain a more orange color on their blaze and dorsal fin with age. 

These fish are being grown in-house from smaller sizes obtained and added to from my wholesaler when needed. A breeder group has been established in-store in order to grow out fry and eventually lower the price on this popular fish.


Last count (check for males and increased size) was 04/05/2019. Next count due 04/26/2018

Base price is for a 2.5" Male

Best kept in single male tanks with milder Lake Malawi Peacocks and Haplochromines. 55 Gallon or larger tank suggested.

Best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five to six females.
